1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Muddle 2 curry leaves in a mixing glass with all of the ingredients. Stir and strain unchilled and undiluted into a cocktail coupe and garnish with a fresh curry leaf.
For my second cocktail at Estragon, Sahil Mehta asked me if I was in the mood for a Scaffa, a room temperature cocktail that can sometimes be undiluted as well. Since I have a soft spot for Scaffas, I gave the thumbs up. Sahil's use of Batavia Arrack and perhaps the curry leaves led him to name the libation the Coral Triangle. The Coral Triangle is a region of ocean encompasses the Philippines, Indonesia, and other islands and contains a great deal of biodiversity.
